Overview

Travel in comfort in an air-conditioned bus to the Colonia Gell, where you will visit Antoni Gaudi’s crypt. The next stop will be Montserrat, a rocky outcrop with extraordinary formations that will capture your attention as soon as you begin to approach. It will seem even more impressive when you ride to the top of the mountain on the rack railway, a unique means of transport. There you will be able to visit the Benedictine monastery and kiss the Moreneta, an 11th-century wood carving of the patron saint of Catalonia, or explore the many paths inside the natural park on foot. No other trip will allow you to enjoy nature, spirituality, and architecture at the same time!

    Excellent trip. Beautiful sites and Marc was a very knowledgable and personable guide. Highly recommend. Well worth the money.

    Enjoyable and informative tour - highly recommendable for a day's trip. Gaudi Crypt was one of the highlights . Make sure you book the day when the Montserrat Boys choir are performing

    This trip starts early but is not rushed, very relaxed, allowing you to see the Gaudi Crypt at Colonia Guell before going to Montserrat. In Montserrat you get a tour of the school where the boys choir study and this allows you to access the side of the altar directly in the Basilica without waiting in a queue. You get to see the choir singing before going straight up to see the Black Madonna. An excellent trip with very informative guides both times we took it. Highly recommended.

    Our guide Marc was wonderful and knowledgeable. The best part of the tour was the exclusive and private access to Colonia Güell and the Monestary music school and choir performance. We had an excellent day.

    A great day out - although we did feel it was a little long...didnt need to have quite so much time at Montserrat.
    Great to be able to skip the queues and see the Black Madonna...........a little to long wondering through the school boys choir dormitory.
    Unfortunately they were on school holidays when we were there so didnt hear/see them sing.

    This was one of the best day trips during our 2-week trip to Spain. Laila, our tour guide, was exceptional! She explained everything very well and was very much conscientious of the needs of the people in the tour. The tour is well-organized. Everyone is given a one-way bluetooth headset so that you can hear clearly the guide speaking.

    Colonia Guell was pretty interesting. The church was amazing. The church is a Gaudi masterpiece that you don't hear often but it's worth a visit.

    Montserrat was wonderful! I think we were lucky because there weren't too many people. It was just unfortunate that the Montserrat boys choir was on break the week we came it was a week after Holy Week and they sang non-stop during Easter week so this was their scheduled break. We had an exclusive tour of the facilities of the boys' choir school and we didn't have to line-up to see the Black Madonna. After the tour, we literally came out just beside the huge altar and had an unobstructed view of the altar and 1PM prayer.

    Mark was a fantastic tour guide. Very detailed in his explanations. Lovely day!

  • 16-Mar-2018

    We had a terrific tour. The balance of guided time versus free time was perfect, both at the Colonia and at Montserrat. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and enhanced our appreciation of both destinations. It was a delight to hear the boys choir sing. I recommend this tour highly.

    This is a trip not to be missed. While there are a multitude of trips to Montserrat I didn't see any other trips that included Colonia Guell and the Gaudi Crypt, indeed I hadn't heard about the Gaudi Crypt but would highly recommend it if you have the chance to go. The crypt had all the components of La Sagrada Familia. Montserrat itself is beautiful. I would highly recommend the art gallery as the collection is really amazing.
    If you are looking to join an organised tour to Montserrat then this is the one to get.
